So many of my clients have small kids and we’re always working together to curb their stuff. What I love about this project is that instead of banishing their daughters’ toys into a hidden corner, they converted their dining room into the playroom and made it a star attraction.
The clients came to me looking for a room layout that includes room for kids to play, a spot for mama to relax, and ample toy storage. The inspiration was a little bit feminine, a little bit boho, with some nautical touches.
With two girly little girls we knew there would naturally be a lot of pink in the room once the toys came in, so we kept the large pieces neutral or a gray-blue with pops of coral and natural texture. To add warmth we had the walls painted a soft, barely-there blush which did wonders to lighten and brighten the space.
Using their existing rug as a starting point, we had it cut down to fit the room and collected a mix of box store furnishings and designer touches like this show-stopper chandelier by one of my favorite designers Justina Blakeney.
